About this listing
Charming flat in the center of Lausanne next to the forest and the old town, with a view on the lake, in a popular but quiet neighborhood. 5 minutes walk to the city center.
The apartment has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a view on the forest and one big living room with a very big sofa (almost the size of a double size bed) and a view on the lake. No other building is facing the apartment and although 5 minutes away from the center, it is very quiet and very green.
The living room is divided in three distinctive parts :
— one dining room area with a bench seat from a pub and an antique wooden table and chairs.
— one study/workshop area with a desk and office chair.
— one living room area with a very big sofa, a coffee table and a home cinema (provided you have a computer with VGA or Mini DisplayPort and optical out or mini-jack out).
There's an all equipped kitchen with oven and dishwasher (but no microwave!), a high table and two highchairs for breakfast.
The bathroom has toilets and a bathtub.
The whole apartment has been freshly painted. It's on the 4th floor with no elevator. Therefore it is not recommended for disabled people, but it is worth the view.
You are located 3 minutes away from "La Cité" the old town of Lausanne and 2 minutes away from the beautiful park of l'Hermitage. One of the best vietnamese restaurant, "Dalat", is just around the corner, located in an old-fashioned swiss chalet. The contrast makes it a place worth seeing.
If you're lucky enough, some sheeps will be in the pasture just up in the woods. And you can wake up to the sound of their bleat ;)
No loud music at night please. Neighbors are nice but tend to sleep early.
Please leave the apartment clean when you check-out.
Pas de musique trop forte le soir. Les voisins sont sympathiques mais ont tendance à dormir après minuit.
Veuillez s'il vous plaît laisser l'appartement propre lorsque vous le quittez.
Accueil très bon. Coup de téléphone et tout de suite, nous avons pu rejoindre le logement. Explications claires, confiance et la possibilité d'utiliser ce qui était dans les armoires et dans le frigo.
Logement situé près du centre face à la foret et avec vue sur le lac.
Flat was nice and spacious, with nice views over the city and lake. Was able to check into the flat when I arrived in Lausanne at 1200 (which was much appreciated), and Melano was waiting to give me a tour of the flat. Very happy.
Melano was helpful and charming. The apartment has character and is comfortable and well equipped, and fairly close to the city centre, as well as to park land around the hermitage museum. Fast broadband worked well. Nice little espresso machine. And there was a projector I could use to watch movies (bring some DVDs if you plan nights in!)
Overall a very pleasant experience. Would definitely consider staying there again.
Great location and a nice home!
Me, my spouse and our little baby stayed at Melanos flat for 3 nights. The flat was spacious and tastefully furnished. It was good for the baby too, who gets around quick, not much stuff we would've had to move out of the way or hide. There's some interesting books there and a good stereo system too, although we didn't have much time for reading or music because we were the for Lausanne city.
The flat is close to the old town and Place de Riponne metro station, so it's really easy to get every where. Traveling with a baby in a stroller it's best to keep on the bigger streets, small alleys in Lausanne often have stairs.
Lausanne is a compact city with lots or museums and art, nice parks and good restaurants, we would've gladly spent a few days more in the city.
The flat is perfect for a stay in Lausanne. The metro is close and to most of the interesting places you can walk. Don't forget that Lausanne is very hilly...
Contact with Melano was easy and straight forward. Although our plane and also the train to Lausanne were late, Melano was very patient and friendly.
Incredible flat! Very nice and warm. Comfortable with an incredible couch and an amazing coffee machine. Recommend it if staying in lausanne, especially for the views! Thanks
we had a great time me and my partner in Lausanne. Melano was so kind and very helpful from the beginning until the end and respond promptly to all my questions. I was a bit afraid as I never passed by Airbnb and I don't regret it, was perfect stay. the flat was well located and perfectly clean and organised, and so close to everything which made it easy for us to stroll around the city. I recommend the flat for anyone wishing to visit Lausanne and around. thanks Melano for your warm welcome.
